2008 Formula 1 Prediction Game Is Here And 1 iPod Nano With It!

It may seem early to some, but for some others, like Mr. Klokan, it is too late and he has been chasing for news already :-). At the end it is only 3 months to go to the season opener and we already know where 2007 top three drivers will race.

The inaugural 2007 Prediction Game was great fun and I want to thank again to all who took part. It was pleasure competing with all of you. Fatfish beat us all and ran away with the bottle of MUMM. It is time for revenge… The 2008 Prediction Game will be almost same but also very different :-)

Join 2008 F1 Prediction Game

While following similar philosophy as the 2007 Prediction Game, the 2008 Prediction Game features several changes that I hope will make the guesses wilder and results less predictable:

1) First of all, the game starts right away, from now until March 13, 2008 you can predict the 2008 Formula 1 World Champion. Do not worry, even if you make your prediction and later want to change your mind, your last entry before the deadline March 13, 23:59 GMT :-) will be the one that counts. The correct guess will be worth extra 25 points at the end of the season. The 2007 winner collected 287 points, so 25 points bonus is quite significant. Make your 2008 F1 Driver Champion Prediction here, in the comments below this post anytime between now and March 13, 2008 !

2) The second change is that you have to make your prediction before the start of the Qualifying on Saturday, that means before the starting grid is known ! Why ? Firstly to make the guesses less predictable. The other reason is that in the new season there will be points also for correct prediction of the driver on Pole Position… It would be too easy to predict the guy on P1 after qualifying :-)


There will be Grand Prize for the overall winner as well as prizes for winner of each third of the season.

The complete 2008 Prediction Game rules are here.

The prizes will be announced later. The minimum is the MUMM Champagne as last year but hopefully with a help of sponsors there will be more prizes this year.

And while I can’t confirm what prizes there will be this early I can already show that F1 Wolf means business :-) and also appreciates its readers. There is a prize to win before the competition even starts:

Nano

If you like what you see and want to get a chance to win one 8GB iPod Nano for yourself this is what you need to do – Promote This Fun Prediction Game !

How ?

1) Sign Up for the daily delivery of F1Wolf by email. If you have done so already, you do not have to do that again. If you have done so and you are not getting your emails you probably forgot to activate the service, so you may have to try again. Once you sign up, you will receive email from Feedburner with a confirmation link that you need to click on, enter the confirmation code and confirm.

Sign Up for F1Wolf by Email Here:

2) Once you have signed up yourself start promoting among your friends who are speed and racing fans too and get them to sign up as well. Let me know via the contact form whom you signed and I will verify if that person has really subscribed. You do not have to tell me their email address, just the nickname they will use when entering their predictions on the 2008 champion – see 3). How you promote depends on you. Word of mouth or on your sites depends on you.

3) Leave your prediction on the 2008 F1 Champion in the comments below this post. That will enter you into the 2008 Prediction Game. (you can still change your mind on the champion later as described earlier in this post).

4) For every 5 people you refer and they do sign up for the email and do leave their prediction here before midnight December 30, 2007 March 12, 2008 (GMT) you get 1 entry for the lucky draw. If you have already been referred by others you can still refer people yourself and get into the lucky draw.

5) I will do the lucky draw on December 31 March 13, 2008, record it on video and post it with the result on this blog on the same day. If you want to see how the lucky draw looked during the Shanghai GP in October, check it out here. That time the prize went to Etienne Teo.

6) If no one wins this time, the prize will roll over towards the Prediction Game.

  3. StewNo Gravatar says:

    I don’ know… If I joined I’d probably be a back marker haha.

  4. F1WolfNo Gravatar says:

    of course not everybody can be a winner but anyone can win :-) at the end all it takes is to name top 8 plus pole plus fastest lap 18 times a year and the rest is just luck, math and laugh :-)

  9. BlazenaNo Gravatar says:

    I spoke whit kimi and he will be winner !

  10. F1WolfNo Gravatar says:

    So far looks like Kimi is the overwhelming favourite with some people still having faith in Hamilton. But come on, nobody for Alonso ?

  11. fatfishNo Gravatar says:

    curtain calls … clap clap clap … take a bow … thump thump thump … the inaugural and reigning champion has arrived X:-) …

    the heart says hami

    Kimi.

  14. ParisNo Gravatar says:

    Givmee Kimi !

    Could you throw in a pound of decadent French chocolates with the prize?

    I think Alsono will come back with focused determination and a desire to duel to restore his honour & pride.

  15. F1WolfNo Gravatar says:

    please recommend me some tempting decadent French chocolate, I will think about it :-)

  24. RichNo Gravatar says:

    Kimi Räikkönen

  25. RichNo Gravatar says:

    Kimi Raikkonen maailma esitaistelija kotona 2008!

  26. Steve RobboNo Gravatar says:

    My money’s on Massa.

  27. BenNo Gravatar says:

    I don’t like to agree with popular opinion, but I have to go with Kimi to win as well. But to throw my name on the line I will then try to predict the top 10 drivers of 2008.
    1. Raikkonen
    2. Massa
    3. Alonso
    4. Hamilton
    5. Kubica
    6. Heidfeld
    7. Pique
    8. Kovaleinen
    9. Trulli
    10. Rosberg
    Now I am likely dead wrong, but I think it is more fun taking chances.

  28. RafayelNo Gravatar says:

    It will be Kimi Raikkonen’s second title this year!

  29. KaylenNo Gravatar says:

    Come on! It has go to be Kimi!

    =D

  30. BenNo Gravatar says:

    I am new to this, and so am not sure where to post my predictions and I don’t see anyone who has gone out on a limb yet. I hope this is right as I am fishing for the 2 extra points (I need all the help I can get).

    For the Melbourne race I predict.
    Pole position to: Hamilton -mcl
    Fastest lap to : Raikkonen -far
    1st place : Raikkonen -far
    2nd place : Hamilton -mcl
    3rd place : Kouvaleinen-mcl
    4th place : Massa -far
    5th place : Rosberg -wil
    6th place : Kubica -bmw
    7th place : Alonso -ren
    8th place : Heidfeld -bmw

  31. F1WolfNo Gravatar says:

    @ Ben – Hey, you are the first predicting Australian GP :-) . I will take this in the account, but you still can change it, anytime before the start of Australian qualifying. There will be special post for Australian GP predictions next week.

  32. RamNo Gravatar says:

    Kimi.It’ll be like a cake walk for him.

  33. mcw3No Gravatar says:

    Raikkonen

  34. StewNo Gravatar says:

    I pick Giancarlo Fisichella, no…wait…. I pick Raikkonen.

    Stew’s last blog post..2008 F1 Preview: McLaren Mercedes

  35. BenNo Gravatar says:

    I am sticking with Kimi to win the championship which I know is boring, but I can not see myself having much chance of winning the MUMM Champagne if I go with anyone else :)
    Would love to see guys like Button, Webber and Rosberg chock everyone and take it all.

  36. I’m going to go for Lewis Hamilton. Maybe just wishful thinking.

    Steve Robertson’s last blog post..FA Cup Quarter Finals.

  37. Rob 'the Flying Dutchman'No Gravatar says:

    It’s going to be Massa. The Ferrari and Massa already proved to be a fast package. Massa will turn his bad luck in the 2007 season around and is determined to beat his teammate this year.

  38. OzziNo Gravatar says:

    Kimi Raikkonen will again be champion!

  39. F1WolfNo Gravatar says:

    The voting is now over. However, as I am in Australia at the moment, in case you are in a time zone that still reads March 13, I will still accept the entry.

    Kimi Raikkonen – votes from F1Wolf, Eric K. Roeske, Klokan, blazena, fatfish, zblkhwk, Paris, alonso, Cyberarm3000, Botiking, Rich, Ben, Rafayel, Kaylen, Ram, msw3, Stew, Ozzi

    Lewis Hamilton – votes from Shaun, fantoci, Chobi, igi, Steve Robertson,

    Felipe Massa – nieuwe, Rob ‘the Flying Dutchman

    Hi Wolf!!

    I’ve been in Ukraine for the last week, wedding from some friends :) Well, I hope my prediction isn’t too late for the Australian Gp, round 1 of the season.

    Here I go!!

    Pole position to: K. Raikkonen – Ferrari
    Fastest lap to: K. Raikkonen – Ferrari
    1st place K. Raikkonen – Ferrari
    2nd place : N. Heidfield – BMW Sauber
    3rd place: L. Hamilton – McLaren Mercedes
    4th place: H. Kovalainen -McLaren Mercedes
    5th place: R. Kubica -BMW Sauber
    6th place: N. Rosberg – Williams Toyota
    7th place: F. Alonso – Renault
    8th place: M. Webber – RedBull Renault

    This prediction is about a lot of gambling, nothing about the team or drivers which I support, hope luckly there will be Williams getting some more points there. Anyway, the big technical changels and driver movements makes me annoying about where is Renault. And I believe in romours about BMW, there is something hidden when they’ve been on track so full of fuel.
